can bridge rectifiers be combined to double the amps?

say we have 3 amp 3 rectifiers soldered would that function as 9amp rectifier or needed to be wired in a special way, series, paralel with other components?

I am building an unknown power wind gen ans I gave 10   3 amp rectifiers. Thanks for sharing..

Yes, you can do that.  All of the pins on X number of rectifiers should be connected together in parallel.

If you wire the inputs and outputs in parallel you will get a higher current capability -
....But not usually pro-rata.
